Retired - Vinyasa Necklace

PROJECT N7020
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Intermediate
A small, stoic Buddha centers this necklace, in which glittering red glass beads and faceted pyrite beads frame brass-finish TierraCast charms set with tiny faux opals.
Instructions
In addition to the materials listed above, you will also need a toothpick. These instructions will make an 18 inch necklace, but the necklace extender adds on an optional extra 2 inches.
  1. Take one TierraCast brass finish glue-in charm and place a dab of E6000 glue into the bezel with a toothpick. Then place one faux opal cabochon into the bezel and press it gently into the glue.
  2. Repeat step 1 with the second brass glue-in charm and the second faux opal cabochon. Set both charms aside to let the glue dry overnight.
  3. Using your flush cutters, cut a 24 inch length of black Beadalon beading wire.
  4. String one crimp tube about 1 inch from the end, followed by one brass jump ring. Take the end of the wire back through the crimp tube and pull snug. Crimp the crimp tube using your crimping pliers. Snip off the excess wire with flush cutters.
  5. Add a crimp cover over your crimp tube.
  6. Begin stringing your beads in the following order: 5 red glass rondelles, 10 pyrite beads, 50 red glass rondelles. Then string 2 pyrite beads, followed by the loop of one TierraCast bezel charm with the faux opal glued in, then 2 pyrite beads. Add 5 red glass rondelles. Then string 2 pyrite beads, followed by the loop of the TierraCast Buddha charm, then 2 pyrite beads. Add 5 red glass rondelles. Then string 2 pyrite beads, followed by the loop of the second TierraCast bezel charm with the faux opal glued in, then 2 pyrite beads. Then add 50 red glass rondelles, 10 pyrite beads, and 5 more red glass rondelles.
  7. Once all of your beads are on, string another crimp tube, followed by another brass jump ring. Take your wire back through the crimp tube and pull snug. Crimp the crimp tube using your crimping pliers. Snip off the excess wire with flush cutters.
  8. Add a crimp cover over your crimp tube.
  9. Using your pliers, open the jump ring at one end of your necklace. Slide on the loop of an antiqued brass lobster clasp. Close the jump ring.
  10. Open the jump ring at the other end of your necklace. Slide on the last link of one antiqued brass necklace extender. Close the jump ring.
  11. Enjoy your necklace!
